Our new boarder from China moved in on the weekend. Today, without warning, he gave his mother an iPad FaceTime tour of our place, including my studio. I was appalled! My studio is in its usual state of disarray. He said he wanted to show him mother what I used to make my work. Moral of story = always leave my studio picked up at the end of the day. Sigh.
It’s been a busy weekend. No rug hooking to speak of. Lots of tutoring though. And lots of errands. Hubby is in great angst about whether to retire this year or next, when he turns 65. He spent yesterday crunching numbers and the evening talking to me about his results. I told him to do what he wants. He’s put in over 30 years supporting the family. I think that’s enough.
So, back on track this week. I sorted out the tax mess last week. So it’s back to rug hooking this week. I’ll be working on Dancing Tree.
I removed my work from Traditions Hand Craft Gallery a couple weeks ago, due to a change in commission structure. So I have all that inventory to reintegrate into my system at home and prepare to post on Etsy. Ideally I would like it posted by mid-June. But it’s a lot of prep work as there are close to thirty pieces to add to my Etsy shop.
And I’ll be starting to think about my booth display for the Cathedral Village Arts Festival Street Fair the last Saturday of May.
Oh, plus two days tutoring. A busy week for me.
